“Right away when you broke up with Ben Affleck, Marc Anthony was there, like, two days later, and you were in,” said Maria Shriver, referring to J-Lo who broke up with Ben Affleck in January and had married Anthony by June.
“Right, you’re absolutely right,” acknowledged the singer.
Jennifer Lopez added: “It was probably my first big heartbreak, and to have one of my best friends who I’d known for years who I actually love and did have chemistry with come into my life and say, <<I’m here>>. What you need to know is, nobody can save you or heal you. Only you can do that for you.”
Marc Anthony has settled an ongoing court battle with his ex-wife, former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres, regarding child support.
A judge ordered Marc Anthony to pay $26,800 per month in child support for his two sons with Dayanara Torres, Christian and Ryan.

Marc Anthony, 45, was previously paying $13,400 a month. Dayanara Torres requested that amount be raised to $123,426 a month in November 2013, citing lifestyle changes, in addition to child support needs. Part of the ten-fold child support increase included the need for a nanny and housekeeper, which would cost Dayanara Torres up to $7,000 a month.
According to court documents, Marc Anthony’s legal team offered $28,000 per month, but the judge ordered $26,800. His team also offered $30,000 per year for travel, but the judge ordered $12,000.
The documents also revealed that the original judgment required Marc Anthony to pay support until the kids were 21, plus college education. The judge terminated support when the kids turn 18, per California law.
Marc Anthony and Dayanara Torres, 39, were married from 2000 to 2004. One week after their divorce was finalized, Marc Anthony married Jennifer Lopez.
Marc Anthony has dumped Topshop heiress Chloe Green just weeks after she moved to the US, according to claims.
Marc Anthony, 44, reportedly told Chloe Green their romance was over and the designer, who at 22 is just three years older than her lover’s oldest daughter, moved her belongings out of their shared Miami house.
Chloe Green, whose father Sir Philip is worth an estimated £3.8 billion ($6 billion), was first spotted out with Jennifer Lopez’s ex-husband in February.
It is thought Sir Philip Green, who is good friends with Marc Anthony had given his seal of approval to the union.

A source told The Sun On Sunday: “The pair got serious very quickly and had the blessing of her parents, but it hasn’t worked out.
“It seems to have been Marc’s decision to end it.”
The source added the decision to split was sudden and Chloe Green has now left Miami to go on holiday with friends to recover.
Marc Anthony was married to Jennifer Lopez for 8 years and has twins Emme Maribel Muñiz and Maximillian David Muñiz with the star.
He also has a daughter Ariana from his relationship with former New York police officer Debbie Rosado and two sons with ex-wife former Miss Universe Dayanara Torres.
Sir Philip Green holidayed with Marc Anthony and J-Lo in 2010.
Chloe Green’s exes include Djibril Cisse and Jermain Defoe.
Earlier in the relationship Marc Anthony and his younger girlfriend were believed to have been smitten, with the UK based Chloe Green moving over to the US for her lover.
A source told Grazia magazine: “Chloe and Marc have totally fallen for one another. She’s been looking into getting a place in New York, where they love to hang out, or Miami, where his family are based.”
According to Heat magazine, Sir Philip Green flew out to Miami to spend the Easter weekend with Chloe and Marc Anthony, as well as her mother Tina and brother Brandon, where the group got some dutch courage for the family meeting by drinking Dom Perignon at local club Set.
Jennifer Lopez admits she is still struggling to deal with the collapse of her marriage to Marc Anthony after two years on Katie Couric show.
J-Lo opened up to Katie Couric on Friday, revealing she found it hard to get out of bed when her relationship broke down.
Despite having moved on since her split – Jennifer Lopez is dating her 25-year-old back up dancer Casper Smart – the 43-year-old said having her two twins, Max and Emme, ask questions about the divorce continues to make it difficult.
“I actually just wrote a song about it and just recorded it funnily enough, because I wanted to explain to them without out explaining it to them. It is a beautiful song.
“But there something inside of me that was struggling with that part of things.”
When asked what she says to her children, Jennifer Lopez said: “I feel like God gives me the words every time because every time they do it I get a rush of panic through my body and I’m like <<Oh my god, what do I say?>>
“Again it is learning process, like with Marc, and I said maybe we should do some things together.”

J-Lo was on the Katie Show to promote her new film Parker in which she plays a newly divorced woman. Filming as she went through her own divorce was cathartic, the singer said.
“It was kind of perfect to be honest, because I was very in touch with all the emotions,” Jennifer Lopez said.
“I play a character who is really literally at the worst point of her life. She’s divorced, she’s pushing forty and her work isn’t doing well and she is living with her mum.
“So she’s at the worst point of her life and at that moment when I was doing the movie, I felt the same way.
“It was the worst time of my life going through the divorce with the kids, so it was kind of a blessing – as these can be sometimes – to be able to use all those emotions and all those feelings and put them somewhere.
“As when you have kids and you have to get up every day – and it’s hard to get up when you feel that bad – and you have to hide it all day at work and hide in front of the kids, so to be able to use it in the scenes and really look how I felt was great.”
J-Lo, who was joined by her co-star Jason Statham, also revealed that she was terrified to do a scene where she had to strip down in front of Jason’s character Parker.
“It’s nerve racking you know it’s coming, it’s nerve racking and you just have to suck it up,” Jennifer Lopez said.
In order to look her best, J-Lo starved herself for “a few days” before the scene but had a bag of McDonald’s waiting for her.
“I saw you running down the stairs with a bag and I was like <<What’s in the bag?>> and you’re like <<Go away, go away>>,” Jason Statham said, realizing what his co-star was up to.
Despite talking about how hard she has found it since getting divorced, J-Lo did reveal that her boyfriend Casper Smart and her have taken the next step in their relationship – buying a dog together.
Jennifer Lopez has spent the last week with beau Casper Smart in Paris, believed by many to be the most romantic city in the world.
And while she has previously denied engagement rumors, Jennifer Lopez has once again prompted speculation regarding her relationship by sporting a very large rock on her ring finger.
Jennifer Lopez and her 25-year-old toyboy have been inseparable all week shopping, attending fashion shows and also a fundraiser for President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
But while she may be head over heels for her former back-up dancer, J Lo has insisted that her bling does not mean anything.
The popstar first sparked rumors that the pair was taking a big step forward in their relationship back in June when she was also photographed sporting a diamond sparkler on her ring finger.
But Jennifer Lopez was quick to deny the story on her website saying: “Rumors!!! Don’t be fooled by the rocks that I got,” quoting her 2002 hit, Jenny From the Block.“No engagement!”
But the couple may have been unable to resist the influence of the City of Romance and sources say Casper Smart is besotted with the 43-year-old: “He’s madly in love with her,” the insider told Us Weekly.
“It’s not just that she’s his lover, she’s also his best friend.”
Jennifer Lopez opened up about her new man to Vogue earlier this year saying: “He’s adorable. He really is [sweet]. He’s a good egg. I don’t want to talk about it too much. It’s my private thing.”
J Lo and Casper Smart first stepped out together in 2011, just a few months after her painful July split from crooner Marc Anthony.
Marc Anthony filed for divorce from Lopez, with whom she has four-year-old twins Max and Emme, in April after seven years of marriage.
Jennifer Lopez has been married three times, to Marc Anthony in 2004, Okani Noa in 1997 and Chris Judd in 2001.
